Abstract

This review summarises the current guidelines for vulva cancer in Denmark. Vulva cancer is a rare disease. The diagnosis is often delayed, which results in large tumours and regional spread. The most important prognostic factor is inguinal lymph node metastases. Staging and treatment is centralised to two hospitals. Primary treatment is wide local excision combined with removal of either inguinal sentinel nodes or lymphadenectomy. Treatment is associated with considerable morbidity, and supportive care is often necessary. Local curable recurrences are common. Relapses in the groin are associated with a poor prognosis. Thus, long term follow-up is essential. *) On behalf of Dansk Gynækologisk Cancer Gruppe for vulvacancer.
